Fail Brand Repeats

Brand Repeaters


188 of the 418 reviewers have reviewed other products for this brand. While this is more Brand Repeaters than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the Brand Repeaters and non-repeaters isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Fail Suspicious Reviewers

One-Hit Wonders


80 of the 418 reviewers have only reviewed this product. While this is more One-Hit Wonders than we'd expect to see, the discrepancy in ratings between the One-Hit Wonders and reviewers who have posted more than one review isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Never-Verified Reviewers

Take-Back Reviewers

Single-Day Reviewers


97 of the 418 reviewers have written multiple reviews but posted all of them on a single day. While this is more Single-Day Reviewers than we'd expect to see, it does not appear to have a significant impact on the overall rating.

Warn Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 3 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 7.7. Even though deleted reviews don't affect the average rating, the fact that action was taken to delete reviews raises some red flags about the integrity of the reviews for the product as whole.

There are a few limitations to keep in mind regarding the Deleted Reviews test:
  1. We don't have a magic ability to collect every single deleted review; we can only identify reviews as deleted if we collect them on one date and then notice they are no longer visible on a subsequent date.
  2. We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
  3. We also don't know why these reviews were removed. It could be action from the platform, personal decision by the review author, part of an entire account closure, even some data error on our part, etc.

Warn Rating Trend

  • 7%
  • Created over 9 days

We counted 418 reviews for this product over the span of 3,474 days, an average of 0.1 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 2 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 9 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 29 reviews were created on just 9 days. Although any days with a larger number of reviews than expected is suspicious, the discrepancy in ratings from reviews created on these high volume days and reviews created on other days isn't significant enough to rule out the possibility of it being due to random chance.

Warn Unverified Purchases

Warn Sample Reviews

38 of the 418 total reviews for this product mentioned the word "sample" within their review. This is more than we would expect see; the presences of any reviews that mention the word "sample" indicates that there may be more, since not all reviewers will disclose that they used a sample within their review.
